Listen to the Skies: More about Musical Astrology

By Jill Mattson | * Jill’s Wings of Light

In astrology the aspects of planet’s can be represented as musical chords… two or three notes played in unison. Sometimes these tones blend well and sound good, while at other times they do not. When they sound bad – note they will be challenging energy.

Scientist Johannes Kepler in the 1600s established correlations between astrological-aspects and consonances-of-music. A trine, is an aspect of planets in which they are 120 degrees apart and looks like they are arranged in a triangle. This creates a relationship of 360:240 or 3/2, which is the mathematical equivalent of a musical fifth.

If the frequencies of several planets sound dissonant or nasty to you, perhaps there is another tone to blend with them so they sound harmonious. This transforms a challenging horoscope to a pleasant one! In another application of this idea, if you meet a person who annoys you, can analyze their birth tones and select another tone that enables you to harmonize with them. Sing or hum this tone and watch your feelings about this person change.

In ancient times, when people analyzed a child’s astrology to select a marriage partner, they were seeing if their fundamental tones were harmonious, making a marriage a positive experience! Music and subtle energy of the stars can be useful in a surprising number of ways!

I found another approach to playing with star tones to bring more harmony into your life! In an excellent book by Ted Andrews, Sacred Sounds, he describes ways to play with musical astrology! (Using the first chart in this series.) Ted calculates the tones of an opposition (of the sun and the moon). These planets can be represented by the tones E for the sun and D# for the moon. These two tones when played together – sound discordant – really nasty. Since this particular opposition sounds badly it indicates difficulty in harmonizing the inner and outer aspects of ourselves. In order to improve this energy that weighs us down, we should:

“1. Emphasize Mercury energies in our chart. If there is to be an outer expression of the self (sun) let it be through communication. Mercury has a tone of F, which is more harmonious with the moon tone of D#. This would help you communicate and bring out internal (moon) feelings through communication. Be careful not to internalize all feelings and thoughts. In summary, a tone was added to the tonal mix of influential planets to make it sound more harmonious and provide a solution to the difficult energy.

Another method of using music to bring harmony to this negative energy of the opposition would be by emphasizing Jupiter and Neptune energies (the tones associated with G# and B). When played together with the sun and the moon, they create an E7 chord – much nicer sounding and better energy! The energies associated with the planets in this chart harmonize well together, manifesting a positive expression of energy so that the sun and moon would not block each other.

In summary, Ted plays the musical notes associated with the planets together. If they sound badly, they provide challenging or negative energy Influences. He adds another tone to even and smooth out the sound! Next he notices the planets and what they represent. Finally, he makes a suggestion of how someone’s actions could also facilitate the resolution of difficult energies.
